even if you are small you can achieve big things. even if you are different you can belong. even if you're not the best you can be the best. like sunday early saying he wants to be the first african train it's a coach the top european league doesn't sound too hard right. if i give a dentist of. mates to get a coaching job. you should do this before you have like mr bailey here to learn how to kick it in the toughest courses of jamaica's capital that even make me strong in life you know. and will be any become the first ethiopian to earn a professional contract in europe. i have. that's more like it hold your head high believe in your dream and you can achieve anything no matter
downtown to talk of some locals. you know this is. reggae music to my ears. but where is he from. the union. i. mean the guns you have. i don't know jimi. meeting up with. dreadlocks. she doesn't have dreads anyway but one brit kind of feel good in pete way. sort of first thing i want to know is how. they didn't know that yeah i've been around some jamaicans and you know
a lot of it i would call trying to. explain his nickname explain chippy where did that come from. my dad gave me the name and we just started before. he's just like yeah you know you look like. i've been i mean i've been from the i've been on chipmunks move yeah let's see if he does. everybody have been on the chipmunks until it was us out of you know until it was chipmunk until it was chippy you know. but somebody said to people you know they have been close here. my life on ok no i love the moment so. so by the end of this interview i'll be calling you chippy and this. morning this road leontes life was no walk in the park you know when i look back on my life that i didn't cause for peace it wasn't easy and i mean it wasn't bad as well but. it was difficult times i was there with my mom and everything i've experienced
a lot of things there that even make me stronger in life you know so next picture you relate to this. my life. and only younger one will always be able to be guys and everybody see that i had talent and yet it didn't stop me from playing with the big guys because i could actually handle the situation and ever since i've been playing with all of us ok and you still do now and now i know you make a very young age came over to europe a young. writer. so this picture means a lot to me why because two or three pioneers who first came to europe we didn't have any experience of winter nothing up tall and i remember we came with only one jacket to you and that must be crazy and we came through in the winter time was due
in february when it's really cold in austria no one. we were young i was twelve thirteen thirteen we didn't have so much money we had to live off a budget sometimes we would have to read. for breakfast lunch and dinner just to go through today and just know that yeah because we had a dream from we were very young. because. when you go back to jamaica all the jamaicans into they call you the european jamaican or what you know they everybody's seen me as a jamaican of course everybody know that i'm doing it big in you but jamaicans are like because they never tried to give up their culture. staying on the theme of jamaican because part of this is just to help our viewers
out there learn more about. all jamaicans like reggae music. is not true. jamaican like reggae music. so what kind of music do you like well of course i like regular music because jamaica is my hometown and you have done so next to reggae in jamaica and that's the basically biggest thing right now in jamaica down so to you know yeah i'm line right now honestly i'm more of a bob marley fan i guess i'm in the same community here. so if you play dancehall music for your teammates here labor because yeah they are like gonzo music. and the deuce them to it and they introduce leon to a bit of german culture too. i read somewhere that you saying he's speaking from eating yams so the stereotype question here is
all jamaicans can run fast. growing food which would be. potato. under those things so i think that's what. makes us originally strong begun fast you know so if you ran with him you'd have you tried to run and never tried to run a team. don't think on this at. all jamaicans are late when i'm here i'm never like that i'm. always on time in jamaica it's a different thing it's a different culture i think it is true because most people are always late like. they will tell you some stories you never believe. it's hard for me to believe my. everything is irie. is that two of them are too modest yeah that's modern ok with everything good money everything good money every month so that
means like everything is good money. leon shippey day which has come a long way in his twenty years and plans to go even further i have. a lot more to go and this is for me always a learning process you know so i'm just going to continue and. in the future i'm sure better things and more things will come my head all right chippy i had a good time too let's leave labor couzin with bob marley. how
did you become a professional footballer in germany for the past three months we've been accompanying finney on his mission to do just that with his dream become reality really find a club in your. time for the final episode in our series. ok we're back to check up on. the promising talent from if helping his efforts to find a club in germany did not work out. but it took a plane tasmania and
a few days later his agent alfred gave me a call with the good news. binyam just signed a contract. when he is now wearing red and watch his sign a contract with. a ok. after returning from my holidays i'm taking the first plane. i don't know much about the venue in football that's gonna bail sounds like an interesting time in two thousand and fifteen the club became the first abang inside to reach the playoff round of the champions the last of the red and dropped into the open but was the first of a new team to qualify for the group stages of a competition and the male have a chance to repeat that success and again they face deny. after drawing
tracy goalless draw would be enough to make scan the bears dream come true defense comes first meaning few chances for young forward been. the ninety six minutes of their own. watch out europe scan the bayeux. i mean being in the stadiums parking lot didn't get on the pitch but making his first one for you pin match is a big kitchen. the fans love the african play since going to be you know started integrating african talents like bin he and his gambian roommate ali so were the provincial team has improved its fortunes.
after about thirty minutes to late we are heading to the players' party and this is . the best part. place was definitely not cheap it can close to my imagination of the exclusive world of being a professional footballer. and beanie a boy so that the next morning we have an important appointment at then yes public t.v. station only after it seems like he's not one hundred percent fit for the camera. he's doing a special honor of being us first if you'll be a player and his journey to the land of the skipper. at your piano school they're built so how can you call your. name. you can say. we say always that you came to him benito with
a piece near the ok it's also interesting how i first describes his job as a player a job worth of the editor to step past the only. i mean it was a strange experience to be interviewed. on a bush going to new program you. see minister. often. being spend his time doing nothing eating and sleeping. and i was. three weeks. and. then i went. it was very hot you know i didn't get bread to be professional and. my future.
i have these porton is. from a doctor. in europe you know in one club from europe. here's the question it was with the sixteen yeah. with the national team and now it's the second. place on the first plane in europe from the top and you know use the sec as a sort of. the new seems happy and i bet you were given time to adapt he's making good money and his chance of playing in their own growth. following our fraternity banya looks like it was the right. down. to just a game so i thought. i was
i. going to miss. b. or doesn't assist us just a definite team also father. just . couldn't it was over and. football is loved in africa. break players have come from the continent and their success will everywhere they go but why all the african coaches in europe's top leagues we ask are they simply not given the chance.
very good just to go to america come on come up look look look down here an african coach puts his team through its paces this is forty. a traditional club in the dutch second division sunday only say as one of the first football players from africa to turn coach in the european league. to task ahead of me was herculean i'm fortunate to the robots if i give you the new stuff because to get the question john. you see through this paper you have to realize by africans that. you have to do your best because you're not only question for you. you're pushing for the continent you know because how would you do might influence how the borders might be given a chance because the problem i had my friend when i came was that i had nobody to meet it. i had no. idea africa did it let me try and do like this
there was no. why no successful african coaches in europe there's no shortage of talent from the continent on the pitch. a drug. yeah to ray. emerick obama. and samuel eto just to name a few journalists and he was has written a book on the subject his german title translates to i will run like a black person to live like a white person. or. hangs . myself level. for four months kristin davis traveled across the continent to discover the
structure and the magic of the beautiful game in africa and the world is full view such hope fantasy and design in his book gave us analyzes the different perspectives of football in africa and takes a look back at the games roots. of. the. discipline you. include. human men. dance with a dance activity an altar with so activity and i wish you all the best of costs even down the hall and i'm still following the boat developments on the manager. sunday only say is an african people. but he's also well known across europe. he had a successful playing career in the bundesliga with cologne and barista dormant he
also played for i.x. and eventis when he finally hung up his boots he completed his coaching badges in england it's difficult to get into coaching badges because. several dispositions that are given to you would be citizens to get those by just that you as an african might not get. the caps only say earn for nigeria what any use wears european internationals could use that is to skip some steps of the course. graphic and it's a long and expensive process. so i think that's a hindrance maybe why some african. first of all going to spend all this money and get these badges even if i get it i'm not sure i'm going to get a job anywhere in twenty fifteen only say became coach of the nigerian national team but left after one year following i dispute with a nigerian f.a.
who took over otto pfister and folk i think also german coaches with a long history of working in africa sun they always say believe that an african could do it too stephen keshi was a successful player in europe before coaching nigeria to victory in the african cup of nations and guiding them to the world cup but he had a sight say even higher. because she was not just only a big soccer player he was also because if steve was saying this because i know him . also he was and is because he had also tried in lots to get coaching opportunities in europe and did those were always close for him slowly being he won the african cup of nations with congo following his own successful playing career in europe he came to the same conclusion. that tell you from the experiences or from their own difficulties they faced so.
would most for spoke would you say what's. an optimistic and positive minded person the question is what can we do to change it you know it's hard to get in. the jobs because nobody would give you an easy job to start with is to show what you can do something wholly say it's a charger for tuna sits out at the beginning of the year on the back of a tenth straight defeat they found themselves at the bottom of the table he saved them from relegation this season the club line second position which could mean promotion come the end of the campaign. i don't know what the secret is to success but i can just tell you i can give you an idea of what i did i came from africa i saw different leagues different cultures different playing styles so i think that's . the disick wittes what i did here was that first i came i looked at the
team. and i needed to have players who were hungry. players the park workers. at the league's poorest club only say makes up for a lack of funding with hard work he is well on his way to becoming the first african coach to experienced any real success in europe. comes to mind also on taxes i owe him more than a good. little if this does not win his housing supply that i bicycled if you don't offer polished i mean you know he has a point. but i told myself just i can also play it when the chance comes i must be really really good one trainer fights for promotion coaching fortune assists and also for the african continent so good men are going to your. yeah. yeah.
